Arlington Heights has hired a search firm to find the village's next manager. As longtime manager Bill Dixon prepares to retire in June, the village board has approved a $17,000 contract from GovHR USA, an executive recruitment firm based in Northbrook. Dixon, 67, has had 45 years in municipal management and more than two decades with Arlington Heights. As village manager, he oversees more than 430 village employees and a budget of more than $154 million. Mayor Tom Hayes said he would like to have a new manager hired later in the summer. GovHR USA will do a national search, but Hayes said internal candidates will also be considered. When Dixon announced his retirement, Hayes said he would be looking for a candidate with similar experience and the same sense of teamwork.
